  • Thanks to everyone who came out to help with the EXTRA CREDIT opportunity!

  • Your 5-paragraph papers on the film and newspaper articles are LATE!!!!!

  • Your final opportunity to turn in any missing or late work (with appropriate late penalties) will be MONDAY, DECEMBER 10 by 12:00 NOON in my mailbox in the Geography Department Offices (MH320).  Work submitted after that date/time will be disgarded and not apply to your grades.

  • Most of the links you can see are not active yet.  This is not a bug, but on purpose.
  • This year the weather and climate labs will be in a state of experimentation.  We are actively trying to improve our labs by introducing new and innovative ways to help you learn the important concepts of meteorology.  Please understand that some things may differ from your lab manual and that we will often be working in a more freestyle manner while employing innovative and analytical solutions to real world problems.  It's going to be a bumpy ride at times, but I think it will be worth the trip!
  • Please be sure to purchase your own personal copy of the Weather and Climate Lab Manual in the Salem State Bookstore
  • Despite the rumors and misinformation that you may hear, Weather and Climate Lab does meet during the first week!   Please attend or you will be marked as absent.
